Charlotte (N.C.) Mallard Creek wide receiver Jorian Jordan is putting together a strong senior season. The 6-foot-1, 175-pounder is seeing his recruiting rise because of it, though no new offers have come in just yet.
"We're 5-1 and the season is going really well," he said. "I'm just doing what I said I was going to do. I'm attacking defenses and helping my team win, so we can win a state championship."
Jordan has posted over 25 receptions for approximately 500-yards and six touchdowns this year.
"I'm a slot receiver now and I'm getting more balls than I was outside," he said. "Everything evolves around what I do now."
Jordan and Mallard Creek face North Mecklenburg this week.
On the recruiting scene, Jordan has gotten new interest because of the strong start.
"I've seen interest from Minnesota, Marshall, Ball State and Appalachian State," he said. "Appalachian State is looking good for an offer. I went up there about two weeks ago for a visit and it was a phenomenal experience. I loved it there. The weather shocked me, but I liked the atmosphere and how passionate they are there.
"As for Ball State, they are waiting for film along with Marshall. Minnesota came by the school in the last few days and has just started to show interest."
One other school picking up interest is Air Force.
However, Jordan claims four offers at this time from Georgia State, Hampton, Towson and Youngstown State.
The three-star wideout noted plans to visit more schools in the near future.
"I'm probably going to trip to Ball State or Minnesota sometime," he said. "I'm also supposed to be going up to Towson for an official this month."
Does Jordan like any schools right now?
"I love Appalachian State," he said. "I love the other schools recruiting me too, but Appalachian State is the one I've really gotten down to see and witness. I can't say too much about the other programs. Appalachian is phenomenal though, I loved it there."
